step1
Step 1 Print out our colouring template in this PDF and start filling it with the colours of your choice. Do you recognise these places of interest and iconic buildings?
step2
While colouring, you and your partner can take this chance to learn more about each other. Here are some conversation starters that you can consider when communicating with your younger or older partner:
  1. Are you familiar with these places of interest and iconic buildings?
  2. Can you tell me more about these places? What do you usually do there and who did you visit them with? What are some memorable experiences you have of those places?
  3. Share with me the similarities and differences in these landmarks that you can see in our newer developments.
  4. Do you think the young people today should have a chance to visit these places? Why?
Step 2 Once you have coloured all the pieces, trim along the dotted lines of each icon with your scissors.

If you are confident in using scissors, we encourage you to cut closer to the edge of the template, as this will produce a more pronounced shadow when you light up your vessel.

Step 3 You can use either glue or double-sided tape to attach your coloured templates to the reusable food container.
step3
Paste the cutouts to the exterior of your container. Try not to overlap the icons to allow for a better shadow projection.
Step 4 You can use either glue or double-sided tape to attach your coloured templates to the reusable food container.
step4
Find a blank wall in a slightly darker corner of your home. Shine your torchlight through your mini vessel and watch how it reveals a magical shadow play on your wall! We encourage you to add different shapes to your vessel to make this piece uniquely yours.
